The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night football, but it wasn’t without more problems. Here are our takeaways from the Bucs’ Week 6 win, over the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Buccaneers lost cornerback Richard Sherman to a hamstring injury and we have a caller on the show who voices his concern about the secondary continuing to be battered and bruised.

With the coaching upheaval in Las Vegas, there are some names on the Bucs staff that could become top targets and candidates to replace Jon Gruden with the Raiders, after the 2021 season.

What if we told you that Mike Evans was no longer the top wide receiver on the team? The numbers are pretty revealing that what I told you in August is beginning to come to fruition - with no signs of slowing down.

Even with one fewer game played than Evans or Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown is now leading the team in targets for Tom Brady. All three receivers are close in terms of receptions and yards, but AB seems to be Brady’s go-to guy when he’s on the field.

Ronald Jones may be looking out for his future after the season and it isn’t out of the realm of possibility that 2021 will be the last season we see RoJo in a Buccaneers uniform. The more Leonard Fournette asserts himself as the top guy, the more likely it is that RoJo is out the door.

And finally, forget the Arizona Cardinals being undefeated or the Buffalo Bills looking to be unstoppable - the Bucs are still the best team in football and it isn’t particularly close. The Locked On Bucs Podcast explains why.
